Abstract

At the end of 2018 across the globe there are 37.9 million people with HIV/AIDS also thanks to the use of HAART which led to an increase in life expectancy. The Italy Immunization Plan 2017-19 recommend vaccines to these patients but a protocol still isn’t present. Moreover, despite the availability of effective vaccines, coverage remained very low for many reasons including problems with privacy. The objectives of this study were a) the appliance of a shared clinical pathway between the ‘‘Immunization Center of Hospital Hygiene Operating Unit’’ and the ‘‘HIV/AIDS Disease Prevention,Diagnosis and Treatment Center of Infectious Diseases Operating Unit’’ b) the increase in vaccination coverage and the evaluation of side effects.
